In 2008, I was approached by the Women for Health and Wellness, Incorporated here in southern Illinois to help get a Men's Health Conference off the ground. For years (decades actually) the group had done a Women's Health Conference with great success. At the time, I was not only anchoring the morning news at WSIL, but I was also the medical reporter. I jumped at this opportunity, mostly because there's nothing like this for men around here and I felt (still do) that it's a great service to those who attend. Men's Health Conferences are pretty rare around the country too.
Breakfast and lunch are a part of the deal as are a dozen different break out sessions. Men chose their three favorite and get to attend the 50 minute sessions. Topics this year include prostate health, heart disease, colon cancer, 401K planning, fishing, and the million dollar knee. You can see the complete list and descriptions (as well as register) by clicking this link.

If you're in the region, come out and take some time to focus on yourself. There are plenty of awesome prizes this year too, including four box seats to a St. Louis Cardinals game (donated by Dr. William Hays) a complete set of DDP Yoga (donated by DDP Yoga), and two passes to Shawnee Bluffs Canopy Tours (donated by Shawnee Bluffs Canopy Tours in Makanda). There are plenty of other great prizes too.
I hope to see you at John A. Logan College on Saturday, March 22 from 7 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Call 985-9210 for more details.
